really liked it
bookshelves: kids
Read in January, 1991

Picture this,
I am 7,its Christmas and all the gifts are wrapped and under the tree.
I could see through the wrapping paper a faint outline of the cover of A Light in the Attic.
I begged.
I screamed.
I was not allowed to open the present even though I knew what it was.
But... I still have the original copy and read it to my son and because of my harrowing experience I love this book even more.

Beth I have a strong feeling Mr. Silverstein would be happy to hear that.

Rayni I bought my children these books when they were in elementary school. They are now in their early 20s & still have the books. I hope they still have them when they are little old men. I've thought about stealing the books from them, LOL
